Community Organizer – Montbello (Denver)
The Colorado Trust seeks to hire a dynamic community organizer to engage a grassroots base of community leaders to collaborate with The Trust’s Community Partnerships efforts in the Denver neighborhood of Montbello. The community organizer will mobilize local community members to identify both barriers and meaningful opportunities to build power to achieve health equity. We are seeking an ambitious, organized, high-performing individual who loves to work with people, talk to community members, and has strong communication and leadership skills. The ideal candidate will either live in or have knowledge of the Montbello community in which they will be working; have experience in community organizing and engagement; and be able to effectively provide grassroots connections and support to emerging community leaders who are most directly impacted by barriers to health equity. These barriers may include (but are not limited to) immigration status, transportation, employment, affordability, education, access to primary or mental/behavioral health care providers, language, culturally responsive care and housing. The successful candidate will be a part-time, temporary employee of The Trust. The deadline to apply is end of day on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018.
